  3. Hey team, it's that time again for another meet. We'll try the same deal as last time, meet at the riverbank in Lower Hutt at 1030 then cruise up to Paraparaumu and grab a feed for those who want to join. Hopefully we get better weather then last time, but probably not as it's still Wellington Sorry Sunday was the only day my schedule allowed. Also here's the link for those on FB https://fb.me/e/H6T2ISeP Hope to see some of you there

  4. I've finally committed to EL for mine. I'd been tossing up using Niran’s old headers but grabbed a set of EL headers with the same uppipe location to replace the old UEL ones he was running. It's just a more mature sound that doesn't attract the same attention as usual boxer sound.

  5. Yeah I can't wait. Have been listening to some clips including @Lorens car and they definitly sound great. I also have rcm/samco turbo inlet and intake so should get some nice spool nose too.

  7. Well you have to find some first... legacy headers are easy to get, but they have narrower pipes at the exhaust port side. I had to import mine because no one had any in NZ... at least no one was selling them! Once you have paid for the sump, headers/up pipe, shipping and had the turbo flange modified, you might be spending about the same or more than good aftermarket headers. in my opinion you don't need to hold up the tune for these headers... you can get your tune... change the headers later, and if you are worried just get the tune checked and tweaked if it ev

  8. Thanks for replying, I've figured it out. IZichard is right, pedestrian airbag. Car is 2017 impreza .

  9. How are pedestrians ever going to learn to respect drivers if cars have things like that. Lame.

  10. I have a couple of these... large one in the car, smaller one on a trailer. https://gpslivetrack.co.nz/gps-trackers/battery-powered-gps-trackers/ $15+gst per month each as well, which kinda sux but there are a lot of features you get for that and don't have to worry about sim cards etc.

  11. Why do people go to the dealership? I don't understand. Though 1200 to 1500 doesn't sound all the bad. The shocks you use will have a big influence on the cost I'd say.

  12. Awesome. Unfortunately Sundays rarely work for me but with some luck I'll be able to join in briefly.

  13. Only difference I can think of might be ABS vs none-ABS. You can use hubs with ABS rings on a none ABS car... but not vice versa.

  14. Chiming in via sound - they sound wicked with Equal length headers. still has the rumble at idle but sound like an imbred evo/wrx on boost its wild. regret not getting them but will look into it shortly once I make up my mind on selling or not haha

  16. Yeah, you could reach out to GCG turbo in AUS, as they could make one, but you could say goodbye to north of 3k Otherwise, you could find a blown legacy twinscroll turbo, send it to murch and be like "I want power plz" and he'll build you a new turbo.

  17. I'm willing to bet you got Legacy ones. Which aren't bad. I can sell you a twinscroll to singlescroll up-pipe if you'd like. That's $150 but you'll spend 5x as much getting one made or twisted.

  19. Can't be bothered spending anymore money at this stage so I'm going to attempt to port the exhaust manifold and uppipe. A lot of people claim decent results for spool. No point taking much material off as everything lines up pretty well already and im not porting the heads.Just gonna remove casting marks and smooth it out. I'll also port uppipe to match the slightly larger td05 to make a smooth transition. I have my doubts it will do much but we shall see. Got my makita die grinder and drill attachments ready to go.

  21. I had Prova equal lengths on mine. Good header with a stock turbo, honestly I thought they sounded decent too. Had a tendency to crack once I went to a big turbo. Gains were, as described, likely minimal on paper but the car felt nice to drive. I've gone to Legacy Twin Scrolls + up-pipe on the latest attempt at making the car better, had to change sump, dipstick and dipstick guide tube, and the pickup.

  22. I used Subaru v9 STi headers... they are purportedly better than most or all off the shelf aftermarket headers. You have to change the sump and dipstick... oh and the oil pickup and possibly the windage tray... I don't remember changing that though.

  23. I took it back to the dealers mechanic who adjusted rubber stops on the bonnet. Problem fixed.

  25. Hey guys, New here. Does anyone knows what the below symbol mean? Its just showed up last weekend. I've scrolled through dash symbols but can't find it.

  26. No problem. Be aware that it's also not a green flag... the gearbox could well be shagged and ready to snap a tooth. You have to factor that in when buying an older car.

  27. Would help to know what car we are talking about here but to me that looks like one of those ridiculous pedestrian airbag things that some newer cars have.

  28. Again strange but found this on the forums hose 10 topic and this image has a very similar setup to what I've done Straight hose to Mani from bov and obviously block the existing hose the tee came off of Question still remains if I can find what they look like standard so I can reference to my one as I believe not all rev D's were made equal

  29. I ended up getting a Roger Clark motorsports one without the breather ports. It's reinforced and stronger than perrin and similar brand ones.

  30. Very interesting findings So I did what I'd do to any rev a b and c which is the ol faithful hose ten mod Somehow I don't know but I thought hey won't hurt to try it so I blocked off what would go to hose ten and also the blue tee 15-16 psi both turbos no cute nothing couldn't wipe the smile off my face fast enough So someone has muddled up the vac hoses but I'm still very curious as to if this is a universal thing with the rev d or is it just my special case that's like this 😂 See attached pic

  31. Here's a quick question, do you have access to an air compressor? Could you potentially put a vac line direct to the wastegates from a regulated air compressor and check that they're holding?

  32. To be fair to @Divine the first post was made in 2009, so it doesn't mention anything about a 2014 model

  33. If you are careful you can just pull the top of the vent panel. Top of the Sti logo outwards and get 30mm or so gap. They just grab the rubber and pull away from vent. Only one side of the rubber is held on by tiny 4mm washers on plastic pins. if you get brave unscrew the side skirt from front arch and the the bottom of the panel has a small clip at the bottom. you can then cut or drill some more holes to get better flow. There is 40mm before you hit the actual car frame.
